    Citizenship is not age based.
    Drug rights is not aged based.

    What "rights" do married people get that non-married people cannot get through civil contract?
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    Ok... The US not only put around 1 billion into it, it also supplied Ukraine with the US State Department official as a wife of that brainless frog that passes for Ukrainian president.

    Thank you.

    If the president and the Northen states had no problem wiping their butts with their own constitution with regard to the rights of the Southern states, I can't see why they found it impossible to bend the laws a bit in order to free the slaves (if freeing the slaves was a real reason behind the war).

    Plenty of PRIVILEGES are granted by the marriage license.

    Privileges come after responsibility. Can "married" gays fulfil the same responsibilities as a straight couple? No. Then why should they have the same privileges?

    I want to have presidential privileges, but unless I can fulfil the responsibilities of a president I am not going to have the privileges.

    Priviliges are not an automatic right.

    Hmm so your saying that Kateryna Yushchenko was a gift from the US State Dept to Viktor Yusgchenko who was born in Khoruzhivka and the last time I looked that was still part of the Ukraine not part of France.

    It had nothing to do with the fact they meet fell in love and decide to get married right

    What are the responsibilities that you are speaking of that are incumbent to the privilege of marriage?
